    A double feature of rare, archival media treasures... January 18, 1950 – WNYC, live from Tanglewood: “Here, seated around two pianos are four of the leading American composers – Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, Lucas Foss, and Irving Fine… Probably the best way to give you a good picture of what American music promises for the future, is to just throw the topic to the four gentlemen, like tossing it to the lions, as it were, and let them bat it around…” As part of our Bernstein centennial celebration, the Library and Tanglewood reconsider the question “What is American Music.”  Illustrated by a photo-collage of images from Tanglewood in the late 1940s, this audio gem is paired with a rarely seen performance footage of the original Ballet Theater cast, including Jerome Robbins' himself, performing Fancy Free in 1944.  (If you need assistance with online reservations, please visit the welcome desk at the Library for the Performing Arts' Lincoln Center Plaza entrance, where volunteers will make a reservation for you, even if you do not use email. For free events, The Library generally overbooks to ensure a full house. All registered seats are released 15 minutes before start time, so we recommend that you arrive early.)

    A Night at the Ballet could not be more appealing than spent watching Don Quixote. The tale of two young lovers, Kitri and Basilio, infused with the vibrancy of Spain. The music filled with sounds of guitars and tambourines and the dancing, leaps and turns of flirtatious Gypsies and Toreadors masterly choreographed by Chiara Ajkun on the score of Leon Minkus. Charming, exhilarating and plain funny, it calls for pure entertainment. The performance is part of the Ajkun Ballet Theatre's Face to Face Series. Presented by the Artistic Director in the intimacy of our studios, this series affords the audience a close-up to the performers and the opportunity to meet fellow dance lovers and Company Dancers and take pictures with the performers at the end.One hour with no intermission.
